In this guide, the acutal laptop is Lenovo Thinkpad X60.

First of all,  shut down your  Thinkpad X60. Disconnect the AC adapter and remove the battery.

1. Remove all screws shown in the picture. If you just want to replace the Thinkpad X60 keyboard or the cell on the motherboard, you only need to unscrew the screws in red cycles. The screws in yellow cycles secure the DIMM cover, and the screw in green cycle secures the hard disk drive slot cover. The screws in blue cycles secure the keyboard bezel. If thinkpad X61, the screws are different, just remove all the secrews on the bottom.
